Stephen's Story

Hi everyone.

Today  I would like to  introduce you too an  amazing  young  man named  Stephen Sutton.

A few days ago, I was made aware of  this  young man.

Please read below---

"Stephen Sutton has been battling cancer since the age of 15. On January 13th 2013, shortly after finding out his disease was incurable, Stephen made a Facebook page called “Stephen’s Story”. On the page he outlined a bucketlist of 46 things he wanted to achieve in the near future. Since creating the page Stephen’s following has grown exponentially and he has inspired thousands of others with his positivity and passion for life. He has achieved more than most would in a lifetime; resulting in him winning countless awards in recognition of his inspirational work, most notably he has raised over £560,000 for charity in just one year. This is not a sob story, this is Stephen’s Story."
Following the shock of an incurable cancer diagnosis Stephen came to terms with the fact his long term goals of becoming a doctor were realistically not viable anymore, so as a result he needed a change of a direction. On the 13th January 2013 he created the Facebook page Stephen’s Story.
In its original form, the page consisted of casual updates while the active teenager ticked off items from his bucketlist of 46 things he wanted to do with the time he has left. Since then, the page has developed and its sole goal is to help others- whether that be by the fundraising the page promotes, the motivational quotes and statuses that are put out, or just by the humour and general positivity he integrates within every status.
Stephen’s Story has since expanded to other forms of social media including Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, amongst others. The much admired teenager, who writes every update himself, has now most impressively acquired over 16,000 dedicated Facebook fans and nearly 15,000 avid followers on Twitter.
Stephen’s Story has now evolved into all encompassing online platform that Stephen uses to spread as much positivity as possible from. Thus far he has inspired thousands of people across the world with his passion for life and will continue to make a genuine difference for as long as he can.

I want to help Stephen raise more awareness and funds for Teenage Cancer Trust.

Starting today April 30th - May 3rd all proceeds from the sale of all my Lacy Sunshine Boo's including my new Jenni Boo will be donated to this Trust.

Cancer is a terrible thing. I have personally seen it affect numerous people and take lives way too soon.
I hope and pray that together with your help and with the help of my Lacy Sunshine Boo's we can  raise awareness and help join in the fight.

Below is My new Jenni Boo, which is available in the new section to my shoppe.
I thank you from the bottom of your heart for any and all support.
Thanks you..
Hugs ,
